coolant overflow bottle, 68 lemans???

Can you guys tell me, did a 68 lemans have an overflow bottle to catch antifreeze that overflowed the radiator? Mine does not have one on it, so I'm wondering if they came with them that year? I always thought they did, but I see no sign of one being on this car. Just the hose coming off the radiator cap, going down the side of the radiator to the frame is all....

Lol.....ok, thanks...... was wondering because they don't have a windshield washer bottle or bracket for it, on the car, but I see they do offer one on aftermarket websites for that car, but did not see a coolant overflow for it, and that would explain why...... thanks again!

No they didn't. Just the overflow hose and the clip on the radiator. My '70 came with a bottle. I believe it was added because the car was raced. Someone added a '66 overflow bottle set up to it. I am removing it and making it correct.
